    Ollie is an autonomous robotic blimp. Created using open source technology, Ollie demonstrates the creative capabilities of robots as inhabitants of our society by breaking the stereotype of the servile robot. Flying autonomously, he is observant of the world around him, and reacts to voices and other stimuli, highlighting the machine-human interactions that are increasingly pervading our everyday lives.
